Sooners remain atop AP poll

Oklahoma ascended to the top of the AP poll last Monday afternoon. And lost to Iowa State on Monday night.

But the Sooners are still considered the No. 1 team in the country one week later.

Oklahoma (16-2) stayed at the top of the AP Top 25 Men’s College Basketball poll for a second week. The Sooners received 36 of 65 first-place votes and collected six more points than North Carolina (18-2) to remain at the top.

OU bounced back from a tough 82-77 loss at Iowa State with a dominating 82-72 win at then-No. 13 Baylor.

The Sooners are back in the Lloyd Noble Center on Tuesday to host Texas Tech. The tip time is 6 p.m. and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2.
